Windy City Jewelry & Loan’s certified appraisers help you get the most for your gold. Our experienced staff has spent years determining the worth of gold jewelry based on factors like karat (the piece’s amount of actual gold content), condition, designer and other factors. Their appraisal knowledge is essential because your gold piece’s value isn’t simply a fixed amount. It is determined by various factors that an appraiser analyzes to properly assess its value.



Gold prices are heavily reliant on the gold market. Gold is a commodity, so its price rises and falls according to the market. The price rises when demand for gold is high and falls when demand is low. Demand for gold is driven by both industrial trends and individual investors. Massive amounts of gold bought and sold by central banks also influence the market price.

These various factors help give a good general idea of how gold’s value fluctuates. This fluctuation means that gold sellers may get a different price when they sell now as opposed to later. Similarly, gold buyers may get a better deal depending on whether they buy now or later.

The fluctuations can be tricky, so Windy City Jewelry & Loan’s gold appraisers are here to help you understand the current value of gold at any given time. Watching gold’s market price over time can give you a good sense of general market trends.



If you need money now but aren’t ready to permanently part with your gold, pawning is a great option! Windy City Jewelry & Loan of Evanston lets you pawn or take a loan on your gold, and we’ll give you a cash loan against the value of your gold as collateral, stored in our safe vaults. When you repay your loan back, you get your valuables returned to you in a protective envelope for safe keeping. If you ever need another loan, all you have to do is return with your item and we will loan you money again and again. You will always have a line of credit with your valuables!

Pawning gold is a great alternative if you have a gold heirloom that you don’t want to sell our certified appraisers at Windy City Jewelry & Loan work with you to find a value that fits everyone’s budget. Maybe the gold market isn’t doing well at the time you need cash. If that’s the case, a collateral loan lets you get the cash you need now, and you can still reclaim your gold in order to sell it at a higher price when the market is on the rise.
